Case Summary

On July 14, 2017, Common Cause, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting voter's rights, filed this lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.

On July 14, 2017, Common Cause, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting voter's rights, filed this lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The plaintiffs sued the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity ("Commission"), the U.S. Department of Homeland Security ("DHS"), the U.S. Social Security Administration ("SSA"), and the Vice Chair of the Commission under the Privacy Act and the Administrative Procedure Act. The plaintiffs claimed that the methods the Commission used in investigating potential voter fraud violated the Privacy Act and the Administrative Procedure Act. Specifically, the Vice Chair of the Commission intended to assemble a national "voter file" by collecting states' data on their residents' voting and personal data. Then the Commission intended to compare the "voter file" against data maintained by the DHS and the SSA to discover the names of individuals the Commission deemed "ineligible to vote." The plaintiffs sought declaratory judgment, injunctive relief, and monetary relief.

On July 28, 2017, plaintiffs moved for a temporary restraining order stopping defendants from collecting, maintaining, using, or disseminating voters' voting history and party affiliation, and a motion for injunctive relief in the alternative. Judge Royce C. Lamberth heard oral argument regarding these motions on August 1, 2017, and denied the motion for the temporary restraining order. Judge Lamberth also reserved judgment on the motion for injunctive relief, advising plaintiffs to amend the complaint to include the transcript from a meeting where the Vice Chair specifically directed the Commission staff to obtain any data currently in the hands of the government.

On September 13, 2017, plaintiffs amended the complaint to include the Vice Chair's directives to the Commission. On October 18, 2017, defendants moved to dismiss the complaint for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction arguing that the plaintiffs lack representational standing. Defendants also moved to dismiss the complaint for failure to state a claim under the Privacy Act or the Administrative Procedure Act, arguing that the Commission was not considered an "agency" and the injunctive relief that the plaintiffs sought was not available under either Act.

Before the court could rule on the defendants' motion to dismiss, President Trump signed an executive order on January 3, 2018, terminating the Commission. Following the termination of the commission, plaintiff and defendant counsel came to an agreement after conferring. Based on the status report filed August 3, 2018, defendants agreed to file a notice once the Director of White House Information Technology destroyed the state voter data that was already collected by the Commission. Plaintiffs agreed that after defendants filed that notice, they would voluntarily dismiss this case. On August 29, 2018 defendants filed the notice affirming the voter data had been deleted, and on that same day the plaintiffs dismissed this case with prejudice. The case is now closed.
